Refwatch: Rochdale v Crewe Alexandra
Friday, 8th Jan 2021 18:00 by TVOS
Six weeks after refereeing Dale’s home game versus Northampton Town, the familiar figure of Andy Haines will return to Spotland for Saturday’s rearranged fixture against Crewe Alexandra.
This is a change of referee from the original Crewe date of 29th December as Ross Joyce, who was scheduled to be at Spotland that night, is instead working as the fourth official at Chorley v Derby in the FA Cup.
Mr Haines will be taking take charge of his 33rd Dale match and the 31st at Spotland, which we are confident is a record for the club by a considerable distance.
His most memorable Dale appointment was our promotion-clinching 1-0 win over Northampton in April 2010, while Andy has refereed us four times against Chesterfield, one of them being the 4-3 win at Saltergate 12 years ago when David Perkins scored a fine hat-trick.
The full list of Andy’s Dale matches is:
Sep 07 Rochdale v Macclesfield D 1-1
